To ban or not to ban, that is the question.

It should come as no surprise to any Cape Vincent and Lyme Citizen that a main concern among members of the town committee reviewing the Cape Vincent Town-Village Comprehensive Plan is how industrial wind turbines fit into our St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario Communities.

The working committee is wresting with whether the Comprehensive Plan should ban wind turbines outright or to discourage them. Their meetings are held on Thursday afternoons and are public.



Strangely, the pro-wind advocates don't seem to even care what the Comprehensive Plan says since they now seem to be fully convinced that British Petroleum has come to their rescue. If a giant multi-national corporation like British Petroleum, using Governor Cuomo's Power NY-Article X legislation, can't succeed in taking over the Towns of Lyme and Cape Vincent, who can?
